So I’ve Done Something a Little Bit Stupid…

My inspiration...

If spidernan can do it…

So I think I’ve finally lost the plot. It started quite few months ago, when my very excellent (and very-new-at-the-time) boyfriend and I went on a rock-climbing date. And I loved it. Plus I think I wanted to impress him. It was some combination of the two at any rate.

So guys. There’s only one sleep left until the City2Surf. Not exactly sure how that happened… I mean TECHNICALLY I understand the theory of time, but I definitely feel like it’s been sped up a little over the last couple of months.

I’m nursing a bit of a hangover today guys. Worse than that, I’m sitting at Coolangatta Airport nursing a hangover.

So a week has passed since the 2014 City2Surf and I’m finally getting around to putting together my wrap-up. Please excuse me if it’s a little disjointed, I am full of Sudafed and Armaforce in a bid to rid myself of this annoying flu that seems to have made a home in my body… [Read more…]

Oh my god, I LOVE the City2Surf. It’s kind of like Christmas… only colder and with less ham and presents… and more running. Ok this is a terrible analogy, turns out it’s nothing like Christmas.

City2Surf Inspiration + Black Dog Institute Awareness

Priests2013

Today’s post is a serious one – and an inspirational one I hope. If you read nothing else today, I am asking that you take the time to read this, because it’s about mental health, and three friends of mine who are doing their best to make a difference.

Still got you? Excellent. Let me introduce you to three very special ladies then. Kezzy, Loz and Kell Priest are part of my extended Grafton running family and although I may not see them very often, they manage to inspire me from afar every day with their passion, dedication, kindness and generosity.
